“If we want the perfect star to shine upon our tree, 
Look and see that Brightest Star, and there will Christmas be.”

On Christmas we give and get presents, we sing songs, and we decorate our homes. But what is Christmas really about? Is our happy holiday a Holy Day?

Find out why we place the star on the Christmas tree. Imagine Christmas guests as travelers of long ago. And let the beautiful song “Silent Night” fill your mind with pictures of the night Jesus was born. Because Christmas is God’s gift to us—and if we look around and remember, we’ll learn to see the real Christmas.

This endearing story by bestselling novelist Karen Kingsbury will capture the hearts of children and parents and grandparents will appreciate the applications they can share.

My Review:  This is a fun repetitive book for young children.  The book lends itself to children “chiming in” while being read to because most pages end with the phrase “and there will Christmas be.”  The illustrations are gorgeous!  The illustrator helps to capture the theme of the true meaning of Christmas.  Children will relate to this book and it can be used as a springboard for a family discussion on celebrating the birth of Christ.  Included are many of the symbols of Christmas such as the tree, the star, the Salvation Army, angels, Santa, Christmas programs, and carols.  This is a great book for young and elementary aged children.  This is a great addition to a child’s holiday library.
